  • It was my greatest expectation that trip and loved it, I wish I could have stayed longer. It's beautiful, charming is very different from Brazilian landscapes. I loved ... it's very cold, but I was ready, it was not sustained, was very good. Put enough sunscreen, lip balm, comfortable sneakers and sunglasses we went with a guai de Mendoza, that detail made all the difference!

  • With a friend, we hired the services of Leo and best decision! We had 3 days in 3 valleys with Leo and Luciano. The cars are excellent and they're wonderful people. Made reservations in the best (and most private) and various restaurants. Great rates for million times better than the "famous and expensive and the breathtaking visuals. Was the best experience of our trip. I highly recommend the services of Leo in Mendoza and come back soon for sure!

  • It has been a nice trip, we were in coach, down in places most beautiful for photos, the colors formed by minerals are precious, the mountain range is impressive as well as Aconcagua, is a ride that you have to do.

  • Entry to the protected area that surrounds Aconcagua, the highest mountain outside of the Himalayas. There are various trails you can walk here between 40 minutes and 2 hours that take you to a vantage point for some great photo opportunities of the mountain. There are buses that go here from Mendoza (see the park website) but it's far easier to get there in your own or a shared car. On the way from Mendoza you also pass through Uspallata (where 7 Years in Tibet was filmed) and the Puente del Inca natural bridge as well as a tiny ski resort with a rickety ski lift that can take you a bit higher up on to the mountain side if you want. The park closes an hour before sundown and all visitors must check in at the visitor center near the entrance and buy a ticket there.
  • Starting point for trek to Aconcagua Base Camp aka Plaza de Mulas.
  • Excellent! I went in late June and see the cross of the entrance to the park along with todaaaaa snow in the surrounding area and the Sun was spectacular! Even though I was only at the entrance of the Park it was majestic to watch that show.
